Jenrick’s family faced death threats over memorial plan
THE Housing Secretary needed police protection after threats to kill his family and burn his house down amid a row over a national Holocaust Memorial.
Robert Jenrick said he was threatened after being accused in a High Court hearing last month of having a “stark conflict of interest” over plans for the memorial outside the Houses of Parliament.
The London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust began legal action against the Government over its decision-making process. The High Court yesterday confirmed the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government acted properly. Mr Jenrick, who is married to an Israeli, said the “anti-semitic abuse” showed the “paramount importance of the memorial”.
